have thought about this, the putting down on paper of my
wartime years, for more than thirty years and I'm still sure I
have not forgotten. Always when I start, "Who cares?"

like myself who has something to say. For several reasons I've
made up my mind this year, June 1975, to begin my story."

World War II as a "Screaming Eagles" paratrooper with
the 101st Airbourne Division.
